Have a listen to this please. I don't know if it fits in cleanly with your theme. It is the introduction to a book entitled Best Ghost Stories and mentions some of the stories contained in this work edited by Samuel French.

The introduction, however, is written by a reasonably well-known author. He was more of a mystery writer, but still...

I won't be upset at all if you decide not to use this recording

Fascination... PL OK

It wasn't quite the direction I had in mind, but I'd say it fits as non-fiction. I don't take a 'my way or the highway' attitude, so it's interesting to see how readers interpret the theme 8-)

As I say, I won't be offended if you don't wish to use it.

I'm still looking for something actually spooky!
